After seeing mostly rave reviews for Benjamin Moore's Aura paint, I invested in a few gallons to transform the common spaces in my condo, which had been painted a terrible, builder's beige. My experience with Sherwin Williams' Harmony paint had been good, but working with Aura made that previous experience seem like a much more tedious job.
I actually enjoyed painting my dining and living rooms! The next time I was at the Benjamin Moore store, I gushed so much over the stuff while one man was trying to pick paint that the store gave me the discount they give to designers and contractors.
Here's a look at the paint color just after painting was finished. It dried a little darker, a little grayer than this, but will change depending on the light in the room.
The next big decision was about furniture and lighting...
